Motorola Moto G vs Nokia Lumia 530 comparison: What's the best budget smartphone
Source: PC Advisor English
Despite being cheaper we don't think the Nokia Lumia 530 has what it takes to knock the Motorola Moto G from its budget smartphone throne. It has a lower hardware specs across the board and even though Windows Phone 8.1 includes many improvements, Android is still superior.

100% Moto G review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Motorola Moto G is the finest £135 phone ever made. It’s not perfect and it doesn’t have everything that a more expensive phone has, but at every turn Motorola seems to have made the right design decisions, while pushing the price down even further than penny-pinchers ZTE and Huawei have done in recent years. This is a phone that can do almost everything a Nexus 5 can – or at least everything 90 per cent of the population would want to do with the phone. If you want a sub-£150, or even sub-£200, phone, this is the one to go for.

Best budget smartphone 2014: Motorola Moto G vs Motorola Moto E comparison review
Source: PC Advisor English
You might have come to our Motorola Moto G vs Motorola Moto E comparison review wondering why on earth we are comparing the specifications of two smartphones from the same company with a £60 price difference; clearly the more expensive Motorola Moto G is going to best the £89 Moto E on the hardware front. Actually, what we've learned is that although the Motorola Moto G has the better specification, the Moto E's hardware is sufficient that it will be a great fit for many users - and especially so when you consider that those in the market for a budget smartphone don't expect to get ultimate performance. The Motorola Moto E might not have as good a screen or as much storage or processing- and graphics power as the Moto G, nor its support for 4G and microSD expansion. But it does do everything most people will require, and at a staggeringly good price. It truly looks to be the best budget smartphone money can buy.

Motorola's Moto G is the best budget smartphone around. At £135 it's got great build quality, an excellent screen, decent cameras and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean soon to be upgrade to 4.4 KitKat. It's only limited in the storage department and a lack of 4G support.

The Moto G retails at Rs 12,499 for the 8GB and Rs 13,999 for the 16GB. This makes it the best, value-for-money offering under Rs 15,000 and quite possibly under Rs 20,000 as well. Sure, there are better spec’d handsets at this price but if given a choice, would you really pick an untested local brand over a seasoned OEM? Impressive specifications are no good if you don’t have regular software and firmware updates to add new features and iron out bugs.

Moto G vs iPhone 5C comparison review: Save money or get the iPhone 5S - why the iPhone 5C is a compromise too far
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
These two handsets are both great, evenly matched for storage and performance. We expect that no-one would be disappointed with the purchase of either. The Moto G is bigger and bulkier but has a bigger screen. You will, however, notice the extra money you have in your pocket after choosing the Moto G rather than the iPhone 5C. However, the iPhone 5C has a better camera and greater storage options. And we also prefer iOS to Android - although that is a subjective thing. Finally the iPhone's battery life is better. If you want a budget phone, the Moto G wins. But for all other users the iPhone 5C may well be the better bet. Here comes the controversy: I don't know why you would get the iPhone 5C. If cost is your concern, buy a true budget phone. If you want the best, get an iPhone 5S. Opting for the iPhone 5C is a penny pinching compromise of the worst kind.

The Moto G is currently the only budget handset to run Kitkat. It offers snappy user experience, and excellent multimedia performance. Moreover, it’s a handy phone with a sharp HD IPS screen. On the other hand, its camera is disappointing. True, the phone is affordable, but then the Lumia 720 offers an excellent camera at a similar price. The bigger concern however is the call quality, which of course is the primary task of a cellphone.

100% Motorola Moto G review
Source: Expert Reviews English
It's easily the best budget smartphone we've ever seen, redefining what we mean by that term. It's largely equivalent to the Sony Xperia SP, which is quicker in benchmarks, but not noticeably in day-to-day use, but has less battery life and only Android 4.1. It cost around £300 back in June 2013 when we reviewed it, and costs £220 today if you shop around. The Moto G knocks a huge £85 off that price SIM free. The Motorola Moto G single-handedly says goodbye to compromised, sluggish budget smartphone and potentially kills off the mid-range competition too. Simply put, if you're not buying a top-end handset, then the Moto G is the obvious choice.

The Moto G scores heavily in terms of style and substance, and our only major quibbles are the non-expandable storage and below-par camera performance. The 4.5-inch HD screen is wide, and yet the phone is small enough to hold in one hand and type easily with a thumb. Most of all, praise be, the Moto G is also extremely affordable. This phone is definitely aimed at price-conscious Indian smartphone buyers, and its array of colourful back shells will attract the style-conscious as well. Yes, it isn't perfect, but it isn't meant to compete against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One or LG G2. At its price, we're willing to overlook its faults.

A lot of manufacturers will be looking to bring out a smartphone quickly to match the Moto G but I suspect to get the same build quality will be hard. As most will know Motorola are now part of Google and that gives them huge clout in the purchasing department so to match the components from wherever will be difficult or more likely impossible.

It is understandable that the Moto G gets a lot of interest from people who want a good and simple phone at a great price. The industrial design is simple and super-cute and I just wished that it was lighter. On the other hand, its shape feels very good in the hand and is comfortable to use. It is not too small or “big”. If you seek something more fancy at a great price, the Nexus 5 would be the next logical choice. Beyond that, a world of choice is available to you, but I would recommend looking at the LG G2 and the Galaxy Note 3.

The Moto G hails the arrival of the budget smartphone which is powerful. The biggest USP of the handset is its price – £130. It also belongs to an exclusive club of handsets which are running the latest build of Android, and has a great display and battery. The lack of LTE and microSD support is disappointing, as is the Moto G’s limited onboard memory and squiffy camera.

Choose the Moto G if you want a more recent version of Android and a cheaper phone. The Galaxy S3 is a marginally better performer with a marginally better camera.

The Moto G is a nice piece of kit that should definitely appeal to those who object to payment the wallet squeezing prices asked by some high end kit. Whether it may have a similar effect on those who like to be seen as fashion conscious is another matter - brand name can outweigh price and value considerations. Personally I will be happy to be seen using a Moto G device.

Moto G is the new baseline for Android quality
Source: Geek.com English
This is the part of the review where I’m supposed to say that the Moto G is a good phone “for the price” as though it were an open-box item on a Best Buy shelf that was worth buying now that the price had been marked down. I don’t think that’s true. I think the Moto G is a fantastic $200 phone that another manufacturer would probably charge a great deal more for.

Thus the Moto G creates quite an awesome entry in the Android history books, right out the gate. While we expected the Moto X to be that groundbreaking off-contract smartphone that everyone saw coming since early 2013, the Moto G is more than welcome to fill that space heading into 2014. This will certainly be a device to watch in the (believe it or not) emerging budget-minded smartphone market. Motorola leads the way with a device that’s far better than the sum of its price tag.

We can only assume LG and Motorola were in the same room when they thought up the Moto G and the Nexus 5, and almost certainly someone from Google was in that room. Both are outstanding examples of what happens when instead of trying to cram everything in without thinking of the consequences, you sit down and list all the features people actually need from a modern smartphone and then make sure they do those proficiently and relative to the amount they’ll be used.

Best budget Android smartphone there is? Must be the Moto G

It’s easier to list the Moto G’s failings, such as they are: a fixed battery, no 4G/LTE radio, no infrared transmitter and no storage expansion. That’s really it. In every other way – design, build, performance, software and capability – the Moto G is every bit as good as the likes of the Nexus 4 and Samsung Galaxy S3, both flagship Android devices this time last year that cost more than two and three times as much as the £135 G, respectively.

We've said it in so many words before, but the price is what makes the Moto G a ridiculous proposition.

Verizon, for one, has confirmed it will sell the G with prepaid plans starting early next year, while Canada's Telus will offer it for free on a two-year contract.

We're seriously impressed with the Moto G and are perplexed by how Motorola's managed to load the smartphone with such high-end components while keeping its price below £150. Starting at £135 the Moto G features a decent display, powerful quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor and runs using a close to untouched version of Google Android. This all adds up to mean the Moto G outperforms phones currently retailing for twice its price. For this reason in our mind the Moto G is the ideal choice for any business looking for a mass rollout Android handset, despite a few limitations such as low storage and no 4G support.

Comment

Model:

The Motorola Moto G was built to be an affordable device. Sporting looks that are similar to the high end Motorola Moto X, this device has a clean no fuss design with a 4.5 inch display with device dimensions that should facilitate one handed use. A decent enough LCD screen awaits users at 1280 x 720 pixels with 329 ppi. The screen is covered by hardy Gorilla Glass, surprising quality for this price point. Motorola haven't made too many UI changes to the stock Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, and the KitKat update is in the pipeline. Unlike Android devices from other companies, there will be no bloatware added to this device, which means less unnecessary apps that cannot be uninstalled.

Under the hood is the quad-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC, Adreno 305 GPU, which is paired with 1 GB of RAM. This should indicate great performance even for demanding games. The lower price of this device becomes justified in light of the 5 MP camera. It's certainly modest, and the 1.3 MP front facing camera is nothing but functional. No micro SD slot is available, and options range from 8 GB to 16 GB, so lack of storage space may pose an issue for some users. Another area where the Moto G takes a hit is in the fact that it carries a HSPA+ chip instead of an LTE chip. This means limited upload and download speeds which can't take full advantage of 4G networks. The 2070 mAh battery should provide a full day of use, but is not particularly spectacular. Despite the downsides mentioned this is a device which look like one of the best bargains available in the budget market on paper.
